HC Deb 03 March 1948 vol 448 cc371-2
11. Sir Ralph Glyn

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what facilities are being afforded to the International Refugee Organisation, through its authorised agents, the Jewish Agency and the American Joint Distribution Committee, to visit camps in the British zone of Germany, in Cyprus and in Italy, there to select 30,000 ablebodied recruits and arrange for their transportation to Palestine; and whether any restriction has been placed on this recruitment pending the surrender by the United Kingdom of the Mandate for Palestine.

Mr. Bevin

No such facilities have been requested, as far as the British zone of Germany and Cyprus are concerned, nor am I aware that any such request has been addressed to the Italian Government.
